I’ve been saved by an organic cough remedy!
Call me cynical, but after years of getting my annual chest cold that involves two weeks of rib-wracking coughing, I’ve tried almost every cough syrup out there to almost no avail.
My own elixir helps and probably shortens the days of relative misery and wakeful nights, but it all seemed superficial and temporary. The existential reality as illustrated by a cold. Nice.
So, when The Green Divas Radio Show was offered an opportunity to review Maty’s Organic Cough Syrup, I volunteered. Even though it was in August, I could easily predict almost to the week, when my seasonal cold adventure would begin. It worked perfectly from their perspective as October is the beginning of their busy season.
Alas, I went into it skeptical, but the ingredients were very similar to my own elixir, which has been the closest thing to a remedy I’ve figured out yet.
I decided to head up to Green Diva Studio North, which happens to be in Portland, Maine just above my nephew’s amazing restaurant Terlingua, and of course I could feel the cold coming on. Being undaunted, I loaded GD Gracie and some remote recording gear and skillfully remembered to pack the Maty’s. Smart move as it turns out.
Listen to my review of Maty’s (and my especially raspy voice from live cold—don’t worry, you won’t catch it by listening!):
After one particularly rough coughing jag, I crawled to my sister’s kitchen and took the recommended dose of Maty’s, and I’ll be damned if it didn’t calm everything down pretty quickly, which is good because GD Lisa is a chef at a popular natural food store and gets up before the sun to get her kitchen fired up . . . So, GD Lisa loves Maty’s too!
